Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing today? I hope your week is going well so far?
I've got exciting news! My painting corner is getting a huge upgrade.
If you didn't know, the way I paint is a little precarious. Its a bunch of plastic boxes (containing my nail polishes) stacked up in two towers and a plank of wood in the middle! I was truly grateful when my boyfriend first created it as prior to that I had a cardboard box as a table and I'd sit on the bed which is incredibly soft so there was little support. I am now looking forward to a proper desk - as is my back!
I'll photograph it in the three stages once its been put together! where and how do you guys like to paint?
Anyway..! Today I am going to share with you '12 Colors Nail Art Glitter Power, Acrylic UvGel' from the Born Pretty Store.
If you visit frequently you'll know I've been adding loose glitter to my freehand manicures recently, I love how they look for night time manicures, they give another dimension to nail art, so when I saw these I knew I really wanted to try them out!
They came in a set containing 12 colours (Yes I still spell colour with a U! I can not drop it :) including white, black, silver, gold, orange, light blue, blue, red, purple, violet, green and magenta. The pots are generously filled and are a standard eyeshadow size pot.
Born Pretty Store also claims these can be used for other uses besides nail art such as applied on top of eye-shadow's although I'll say always be cautious when applying things such as use glitter to such a sensitive area (I actually wouldn't) and other personal uses. You could also use these to decorate things too.
I decided to show you how this looks matte because I think it still looks super pretty in a less 'bling bling' kind of way. I've been applying these by applying a top coat, loading a fluffy eyeshadow brush with a small amount of glitter and then gently tapping my brush to sprinkle the glitter on to my nails. I then shake my hands off to remove excess glitter and apply an old (but still well working) top coat. Don't use your best top coat as there is obviously a chance glitter can get in it. Once my top coat is done I can remove any extra glitter easily by dusting over with my fan brush.
I am finding glitter more and more fun with each manicure I use it and these are no exception. If you are looking to add more loose glitter to your manicure's I'd say this little set is a great way to start out without investing too much.
Do you guys like to use loose glitter on your manicures? Glitter polishes vs loose glitter?
Have a beautiful day my friends, I'll catch you again on Friday!
